The doctor suggested grinding there pills.
Apokyn is the injection which right now is the only thing that keeps me from getting off
i have a orotho appointment on wednesday to determine whether my knee is from the medicine or is it something else
I am still having trouble with the fanny pack. It rubs against my stoma which is infected
how do you sleep I sleep horribly
I respond very well to C/L, so it only took 2 days. I reduced the am dose for the next few days, and it hasn't changed since.
I do take oral meds at night when I wake. I rarely sleep through the night since I contacted Lyme's 5 years ago.
Interesting about grinding sinemet for the tube. Did your doc suggest this? Is the Apokyn the inhaler or the shot? I had an allergic reaction to APOKYN.
I hope you and your doc can find a happy spot for you to have consistent on-time.
Jb glad to see you are back in the faster track again. Hope the weather is cooperating for all this weekend. Have a safe one out on the roads.
No DBS here. Just thought about you mentioning combing your hair different. WHAT IF YOU HAVE NOTHING TO COMB?? I know someone like that! tom😕
Dosing in my case is 5am,9am,1pm, 5pm 2-100ml fast release sinemet and at 10pm 100 sinemet slow release (900 total for the day)also at bed time 10ml melatonin and .5 clonapine for sleep. Can,t sleep many nights as well. But mine is cause by pain in my hands(hand cupping with spasm) and relentless Rem Sleep Disorder. Throw in frequent bathroom visits.
My doctor has brought in a second doctor . My app. with the new doctor is July 24. (soonest I could get an app.) The Dr. is from the Mayo clinic. They want to take a close look at my brain stem and cerebellum. I know things are moving too fast and my doses have been raised often.
Ya just take one day at a time. Keep moving forward. Gardener lack of sleep effects everything as we all know. For many it is a symptom. There is that fine line of too much meds and not enough. Then there is the side effects the meds can cause that help us sleep. Our Dr. once we have been diagnosed add us to their list. Us baby boomers are hitting the age now where the hands of time are catching up. And there are allot of us.
I really feel for the YOPD'ers. When I think back before 55 I felt great. So in my case I feel blessed. If there is a good thing about us clogging up the app. times. Well I guess when a certain disease becomes more common it draws more attention. Attention hopefully causes more reason to find a cure. That way There will be little to none YOPD.
When it comes to a parkinsonism at any age we are all in the same pot. Many???????
